Barberton and the Makhonjwa Mountains

Mpumalanga
Barberton and the Makhonjwa Mountains

Barberton is something of a geological mecca and the town’s ancient green rocks are among the world’s oldest geological formations. The mountains are over 3.5 billion years old and are sometimes called “the Genesis of Life”. Take a long walk with a local geologist and learn more about this incredible part of the world. The gold rush town has numerous historical attractions (including the fascinating local museum) and there are plenty of outdoor activities, including horse riding, archery, quad biking and even paragliding off Lone Tree Hill. Barberton's gold mines still exist, and you can watch creative, young artisans fashioning jewellery from the oldest gold in the world next to the Barberton Museum. A far cry from the rowdy, noisy gold rush part of town is the Belhaven House Museum, where Edwardian local gentry lived at the turn of the 20th century. You'll find Barberton a great tourist destination, rich in history, with gorgeous scenery, rock art, archaeological ruins, early wagon trails, gold diggings and lots of outdoor pursuits.

Later, they’ll find themselves around a sheltered campfire being served a delectable dinner, with some of South Africa’s best wines at hand.
